Hundred End Festival of Transport

CLASSIC car connoisseurs from across Sefton and West Lancashire helped to make a charity festival held near Hesketh Bank a success.

More than 200 owners of classic and vintage cars and motorbikes headed to Elim, off Hundred End Lane for the 10th Hundred End Festival of Transport, which organiser Brian Moorcroft told Life On Cars had met with a warm response despite wet weather during parts of the weekend (August 13 and 14).

“It was a very good event, with about 250 cars in all, and even though the weather wasn’t on our side earlier on the sun did eventually come out and make it an event everybody enjoyed,” he said.

“Even though there was another event on in Lytham St Annes on the same weekend, which made it quieter than usual, we were still confident we could beat last year’s fundraising total of £2,840, which goes towards helping the Clatterbridge Cancer Care Trust.

Mr Moorcroft, who exhibited his own 1933 Austin 10 Cabriolet, also added that he would like to thank both William Hunter of Huntapac for providing portable toilets for the event free of charge, and Mere Brow business Top Trophies North for providing the trophies presented as awards to entrants in the event.
